Alarm Radio Monitoring
Alarm Radio Monitoring
Wireless nurse call systems from Alarm Radio Monitoring have been developed to meet the requirements of working within healthcare environments. With 25 years experience manufacturing nurse call systems, we have plenty of knowledge and expertise to help design a system tailored for you.

Nurse call points are manufactured using the latest technology for optimum hygiene using Biomaster antimicrobial protection embedded within the plastic outer casing and buttons.  This provides extra protection against the spread of infection coupled with pear push leads being IP67 rated to enable dip sterilisation.

Biomaster antimicrobial technology provides round-the-clock protection in hygiene-critical environments against bacterial build-up from harmful species such MRSA, E.coli and Legionella. The active ingredient in Biomaster is built-in during the manufacturing process and lasts the lifetime of the product.

Call points feature an infra-red sensor enabling remote operation using an infra-red fob.  Alternatively call points can be released from the wall bracket via the locking tab and positioned in the room if required.

There are various types of call points from bed-head units, toilet and bathroom units to door and door-bell monitors.  For the more mobile; neck pendants, fobs and wrist buttons are helpful add-ons to your nurse call system and give people greater freedom.

Assistive technology devices such as epilepsy sensors, movement monitors, chair/bed/floor pressure mats can be plugged into a nurse call point to further enhance the system and help meet the ever changing needs of individuals.

With ARM’s call logging software, managers can view/print/export various management reports such as staff response times, attendance visits, maintenance reports.  The call logging software keeps a record of all events that occur on your nurse call system, providing a full audit trail for future reference/analysis.

If you require an element of Staff Alarm as well as Nurse Call, this can easily be achieved by combining our Staff Personal Alarm units into your system.  The arm Nurse Call and arm Staff Alarm systems use the same infrastructure, so you need only install one system.

Alarm Radio Monitoring’s leasing options make new nurse call and staff alarm systems immediately affordable.

What People Say About Us
  “We worked with Samuel and his team to develop some learning and development tools. Their work was very professional and was completed to a high standard in a very timely manner. I would have no hesitation to recommend their work.”

Khaled Gamiet, Managing Director of MyCareAdmin.com & the Trustworth Group LTD

“Samuel implemented an action and improvement plan after issues at our nursing and dementia home. We had enforcement action taken against us by the Care Quality Commission, including a formal proposal for closure. Samuel worked tirelessly over many weeks, which included advising and liaising with our solicitors, working closely with the staff, and management team on developing and implementing a very successful cultural change program, where he actively included the staff & residents. The positive outcome has been sustainable, following the completion of Samuel’s involvement.Our most recent CQC inspection now has three ‘Good’ ratings, the embargo has been lifted also, which means we have started taking in residents again. The transformation of the home has been recognised by both the staff team, residents, family members and the Regulator / Local Authority contracting team.”

CQC Registered Manager and CQC Registered Provider. Care Home & Home Care Business Owner. (Contact Provided on Request).

“I have always found Samuel to have a professional integrity that I struggle to find elsewhere. Sam's knowledge of the care industry is irrefutably on point. This makes Sam's consultancy business your first and only stop, what he does not know, is not worth knowing.“

Paul Reynoldson, Business Owner at PR Healthcare Training / Head of Development for a multi site Registered Care Home and Home Care Provider. 

"Sam is an experienced professional. He has passion and enthusiasm. Sam puts his whole into any given task  and ensures best practice is embedded into all the work he completes. Sam is helpful, enthusiastic and has the drive to succeed in everything he does."

Angela Fletcher, Managing Director of Happy Futures, (Care Home, Home Care and Supported Living Business Owner).

So if you are looking for a defibrillator, a CPR training dummie or even a First Aid course – we can Help! We also offer professional & expert advice on all of our product range.
Anti- Choking Device
Over the last 6 months we have had a high demand from the care sector for our Anti-Choking device – LifeVac.
LifeVac is new single suction anti choking device. As the LifeVac has a one way patented valve, when applied it only sucks up and does not push air down when pulled therefore LifeVac creates three times more pressure than the abdominal thrust and chest compressions as trained in First Aid.  LifeVac is FDA approved, MHRA approved as a class one medical device, Canadian Health Service approved and CE accredited. Plus an independent study of the LifeVac on a human cadaver has been peer reviewed and published in the American Journal Of Emergency Medicine by Elsevier. The LifeVac dislodged obstruction of the airway 49/50 trials on the first pull.
The device is ideal to be used on the elderly, disabled, children, people with swallowing disorders plus any person where the abdominal thrust and back slaps are not suitable.
Our mission is to get the LifeVac device everywhere we can, as we know, not only will it save a persons life, it can also help take the panic, stress and fear of choking away from venerable people and their carer’s.

Inspection Ready Healthcare Ltd
My name is Shelley Watson and I formed Inspection Ready Healthcare Ltd in 2015 with a view to making a significant difference across the healthcare sector with regards to compliance; I wanted to allay the fears amongst staff with the inspection process undertaken by the Care Quality Commission and other regulators.  With 20 years of experience within the legal and compliance sector I felt it was time to help staff within healthcare with some of the many challenges they face on a daily basis with the main outcome, which I’m very passionate about is making a difference to the service user.

I started my university education in Medicine then moved to Healthcare Law, since then I have undertaken Masters Degrees in both Healthcare Law and Risk.  I am a qualified auditor and have professional membership with the Institute of Internal Auditors.  I have very high standards when it comes to compliance; however at the same time provide a sensible approach.  I am very driven and love a challenge.  My associates all have the same very high standards and no stone goes unturned during our audits.  My associates are experts within their own rights and have acquired many skills within the healthcare sector.

Long Business Description: A company that puts the service user at the heart of everything they do.  Inspection Ready Healthcare only use associates that are experts within the field of healthcare; being either doctors, nurses or social workers that have vast experience within the NHS, Independent Healthcare or Adult Social Care.  All our associates including myself are experts in compliance and are all CQC Inspectors or Specialist Advisers and conduct inspections across the healthcare sector on a regular basis; My Associates work daily within healthcare and therefore understands from a compliance perspective, staff perspective and service user perspective what is required and sometimes how difficult it can be to meet the challenges the healthcare sector face.  This in my opinion makes IRH very unique as we support the whole healthcare sector.
IRH provide support in the form of advice, mock CQC inspections, audits, bespoke consultancy projects, interim turnaround assistance which includes one of my associates spending a period of time within the service to address the challenges and put the service back on track.  In addition to this we also provide training to staff, including; safeguarding training, manual handling, infection control, registered manger training and preparation for registered manager interviews with the CQC.  IRH also work on large projects including supporting the NHS and Independent Healthcare with preparation for inspection.  One recent assignment being Aintree University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, which has taken months of preparation including a Trust wide mock inspection, self-assessment, workshops with staff, staff booklet, CQC intranet page that staff can access, regulatory audits and regular training sessions.  Following this preparation the Hospital is hoping to retain their rating of ‘Good’.  We also offer a monthly subscription that services can sign up to; this offer includes quarterly visits to the service to ensure they are on track in preparation for inspection and ensures continuous quality improvement for service users.

Inspection Ready Healthcare has received accolades from many services for being approachable, humble and having a fantastic work ethic.  IRH have developed numerous workable policies and procedures, posters, staff handbooks to utilise and implement within services, these useful resources have been very helpful as a reminder to staff and to ensure they understand the requirements of key regulations.

We offer much more through our website and have supported organisations across the country with turnaround support and preparing for inspection.  IRH support organisations/care homes that have been placed in special measures and have received warning notices from the regulator.  We can offer speedy solutions for this and often prioritise special measures over existing work.

Subscribers of the QCS system also have access to a very knowledgeable and friendly customer care team, with each client having their own dedicated customer care representative.
They offer a completely free, no obligation free trial. This trial really is the best way to see what they are about and how their services will benefit your business. During the trial you will be logged into the online version of their system and given access to view their entire range of policies and procedures, mock inspections and other compliance tools available for your service type.
